Johnson Yachts International has recently celebrated its 10th year of operation, with its owner Graham Johnson, well into his third decade within the boat building industry. With time spent in the Northland and Auckland boat building sectors, Graham founded Johnson Yachts International at Pine Harbour Marina in July 2000. As master Boat Builders - Johnson Yachts International Limited predominantely builds high quality one off custom sail and motorboats for both local and overseas clients. Johnson Yachts International Limited are proud to have built two Benford Design Group designs and also had a close working relationship over the years with New Zealand renown boat builder and designer, Max Carter.
Johnson Yachts International also commissioned Max Carter to design 52ft Saloon and 56ft Sportsfisher variants of his successful flybridge motor yacht. One of the largest and most diverse fleets of classic wooden boats seen on Corio Bay will assemble for the Whyte, Just & Moore Lawyers Wooden Boat Festival of Geelong, conducted by the Royal Geelong Yacht Club on the Labour Day weekend of March 10 and 11, 2012. With free entry to the onshore displays, visitors are invited to meander along the jetties and enjoy the display of well-loved wooden boats.
Festival highlights will include the Batavia Longboat, a full-sized replica of a 17th century boat that carried survivors from the wreck of the Batavia, as well as the historic topsail schooner Enterprize. Stuart Dickson, Chairman of the organising committee, will display the Adams 40 he built in his own shed. Visitors can expect a packed program including a grand parade of boats, the Classic Yacht Passage Race from Melbourne, the Couta Boat Passage Race from Portarlington, harbour races on Corio Bay, demonstration races by a fleet of Heron-class sailboats and the Couta Boat Victorian Titles. Set up as a semi-custom boat, a range of layout and engine options are available meaning the Windward can be tailored to the needs of each individual owner while also taking advantage of the benefits of a production boat.
Depending on engine choice, the Windward has a top speed of around 30 knots and her planing hull gives a sea-kindly ride. The wheelhouse and galley can be completely opened up to the cockpit giving a feeling of space not often found on a boat of this size.
The original tower was built in 1795 to the design of Trinity House architect Samuel Wyatt. All prices are in New Zealand Dollars (NZD) and all orders are subject to our Terms & Conditions.

IIRC there is a Len Morris boat in the Norfolk Maritime museum, and lots of other small boats. It strikes me that one of the themes here is that the British spread the knowledge of the centerboard dinghy, first by importing Una, then by exporting Charm, Presto and Challenge.
We still don't have lines up for a modern planing hull, in part because I'm leery of putting up lines that belong to someone.
The arc-bottomed centerboarder was apparently introduced by Larry Huntington in the late 19th century, on sharpies noted for their light air performance. Marquess Conyngham shipped the boat to England according to Kemp, and his wife's name was Jane according to the internet, if I'm looking at the right guy.

In American Small Sailing Craft, Chapelle mentions Huntington right next to Duggan as a designer of high-speed sharpies, which may reflect his preoccupation with all things American. During the early nineties, Larry Huntington began experimenting with sharpies, building them on Long Island, and he, too, developed a modified type. I remember when the Ultimate 30s came out, there was a boat called Whale that was on Lake Union for a while that was wide, and was soon outclassed by narrow boats with wide hiking racks. The Cherub is short and fast but offwind porpoises hugely, more than any other dinghy I've seen. Looks like Truant, a 20' 6" centerboard sloop, was also exported to Britain from New York, and toured various racing venues with great success in 1853. I used to have the lines of Luckey, an 1855 racing sharpie built by Bob Fish with a shallow v hull form. From the drawing board of Ker Yacht Design, Ptarmigan was designed as an offshore race boat & optimized mostly for light air and downwind racing under the IRC rule, using leading edge design principles to gain the upper hand. Built using a relatively simple construction method of carbon fibre and foam core, close attention was paid to detail and to weight. Its sister company Johnson Marine Boatbuilding Limited is very passionate about traditionally crafted classic boats and has spent many years focused on servicing the requirements of owners with repairs, maintenance and alterations on such classic vessels. The Saloon is powered by Volvo's latest concept in power boat propulsion, Twin Volvo IPS 500 diesel drive units which feature twin forward facing propellors in rotating pods which incorporate underwater exhausts and electronic steering as standard.
Old ocean racers, fishing boats, harbour greyhounds and ex-pilot launches, plus large topsail cutters, putt putts, dories, classic speedboats, yachts and clinker-built dinghies will be featured. The 40ft hand-crafted boat is named Patternmaker in honour of his late father, who was a woodworking patternmaker by trade and had cut out the chipboard forma templates to shape the hull. Although the Windward has classic lines that capture the elegance of a previous era it is every bit a modern boat from the construction and layout, to the performance. It also makes a great area for entertaining while the transom drops down to create a practical space for other activities like fishing, diving, and swimming.
It stands on Carn Bras, the highest of the Longships islets which rises 39 feet (12 m) above high water level. The building of the present granite tower used much of the equipment that had previously been used in the construction of the Wolf Rock Lighthouse.

I've got some latitude there, both the 2nd and 3rd Marquess Conyngham married women named Jane. John Teale's 1961 book Fast Boats does have a chapter on sharpies, but looks at them from a length to beam perspective.
Kunhardt and the cutter cranks, and wrote a lot of letters to Forest & Stream, the leading yachting magazine of the day.
Howard Chapelle knew Larry Huntington, who acquired for him some of the sharpie plans that appear in American Small Sailing Craft. Where Clapham had employed a straight deadrise, which soon evolved into the skipjack or V-bottom, Huntington used a rounded bottom amidships, retaining the flat sides and chines of the orthodox sharpie.


We could get very granular in our history of the modern boats, but what are the big trends? The whole concept quickly died out, in part because a lot of the boats broke in one particularly wild race, but we didn't have that many development class dinghies around and it was a chance to see what the thinking was.
Because the IRC circuit is so competitive, both Ker Design and Salthouses were determined to ensure that Ptarmigan was "absolutely cutting edge" on her launch date.

I believe they had to be hand carried into the water as they could not be supported on trollies. He's a nice guy who I'm sure would be happy to help but I've emailed him recently about another matter and had no response. But the really interesting thing is in another book, American Sailing Craft, a compendium of articles Chapelle wrote for Yachting in the early '30s. The Huntington type remained a true sharpie, except for the slight camber in the bottom athwartships, the amount of camber being quite small there and decreasing towards bow and stern.
But if the boat was widely copied, it may be the forefather of the Comet and other early American planing sharpie-derived dinghies. Really high prismatic coeficients like the ++ design, or really wide sterns like the current Cherubs?

Bluejacket was wrecked on rocks near the lighthouse on a clear night in 1898, nearly demolishing the lighthouse in the process. Following the ‘Big Boat’ challenge of 1988 he was at it again, calling defeated Kiwi skipper David Barnes a ‘loser’.His behaviour did much to increase interest in the cup, as many Kiwis wanted to ‘wipe the smile off his face’.
The only real fast ones that I know about are the designs of Starling Burgess: his 110 which is nothing but a double ended narrow plywood box, the 210, which has a shallow arc bottom, and the 510 which I have never seen. These are all light displacement keel boats, perhaps precursors of the modern sport keel boat.
The Question marked the coming of the scow, and both Huntington and Clapham had a part in the development of the type.
210s could use a modernized rig; I've had them planing on big waves, but generally not sure that there is enough area there.
